"Under the winner-take-all system, US citizens have been denied their constitutional right to an equal vote in Presidential elections", said BSF Chairman David Boies in a press release announcing the lawsuits.

Well, you can't. Voters must choose between Texas' Democratic or Republican primary.

The press release says that the lawsuit is attempting to uphold the Constitution's guarantee that every vote-whether for a Republican, a Democrat, or third-party candidate-will be treated equally.

"I think there's a risk in analyzing one day".

By going online to http://www.vote411.org and entering an address in the appropriate field, voters will be taken to a listing of the positions up for election and the candidates who have filed to run for those posts in each party for the locations where the voters reside.

"These numbers are similar to those from 2016, and Texans voted at that time by a significant margin to keep our state red", Dickey said in a prepared statement.

"Texas Democrats are more competitive than ever before". Midterms are especially significant for the USA and Texas House of Representatives since their terms are just two years long.

Derek Ryan, an Austin-based political consultant and former research director of the Texas Republican Party, said Tuesday's result is no litmus test for the ultimate primary turnout.

Running for State Representative, District 89, after the announced retirement of Jodie Laubenberg are Republicans Candy Noble and John Payton, and Democrat Ray Ash.

"In a primary election, the Republican turnout is usually higher than the Democratic turnout", Jillson said.

Voters are reminded that they will need one of seven forms of accepted photo identification to be allowed to vote early, or they must sign a Reasonable Impediment Declaration form and provide an alternate form of ID.

In Harris County, home of Houston, Democratic turnout was up 200 percent from 2014, while Republican turnout increased by 25 percent.
